I know that some folks are accustomed to the cold and even like it. Right now though, it is 27 degrees outside and I am cold! It might not be so bad if our heating unit had not frozen up. I have turned it off for a bit to see if it will thaw out and I have the kerosene heater going. (Thank goodness for back up heat!) I do hate that smell but I keep it in a well ventilated place and it keeps the house warm. The realty office will not be open for an hour or so. I hope they can get someone out here today to look at the unit! How cold is it where you are?
